2nd Blog Anniversary

blog anniversary

2 YEARS!!!

Yes, it’s been two years since I started blogging, and it feels as if it was yesterday. Well, maybe not yesterday but last week, certainly not that long. And I still love blogging, and I’m incredibly happy and honoured that the blog has found regular readers.

And looking at my stats I noticed that the older posts (featured at the end of each post) also get quite a bit attention. So, of course I had to check and see which posts are the most popular ones…

 The most popular posts of the past two years:

    Congrats! That's an achievement. Like small businesses, most blogs fail within the first year or two. Surviving that critical period means you're in good shape for the long haul. I'm sure I'll be admiring your outfits in the 2020's!

      Yes, I think you're right: blogging, like running a business, takes dedication, and we have to see it as a long-term thing (whether it's a hobby or a business), something that evolves over time.

      Thanks, Martina. I'm also lazy when it comes to leaving comments, as I often read blogs on my iPhone (which really doesn't make it easy to write comments…). BTW, I also follow you…

      Thanks. Yes, blogging is actually a lot of work, and very time-consuming. But we wouldn't do it if we didn't enjoy it.

    Happy Blog Anniversary! It takes a lot of work to blog so glad to see you've stuck it out for 2 yrs. Most blogs that started when I did are no longer around.Monica.

      Thanks, Monica! Yes, a lot of work, especially if you want to do it well (and I do). But it's also a creative outlet, and something that is completely under my control. Now, that is probably the thing that keeps me going.
